fight against terrorism and secures the global commons. while the war in iraq is over, nearly 70,000 american troops will still remain in afghanistan at the end of the month. our goal should be to complete a successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. we should evaluate conditions on the ground and solicit the best advice of our military commanders. we can all agree that our men and women in the field deserve a clear mission, they deserve the resources and resolute leadership they need to complete that mission and the country that will provide for their needs when they come home. [applause] the return of our troops cannot and must not be used as an excuse to hollow out our military to devastating defense budget cuts.

, will explain what he did to move away from -- again we were on the precipice of great depression, the iraq war, i think the american people know that we have a tough economy, largely what the republican convention last week was, was hiding their own agenda, a bunch of platitudes and angry insults. people know that we have a tough economy. they want to know how we're going to move forward. we have energized near colorado, here, great volunteers, we're beginning to see great rental strigs. we think we'll be able to build the kind of excitement on the ground to win this election. particularly for the middle class voters in this country, who do you trust to make economic decisions with you at the core? and mitt romney is clearly going to make every decision through the prism of he believes, if people like him get a huge tax break, somehow that's going to trickle down to everyone else. >> another big economic decision that people will have to make is about medicare. medicare has been a winner for democrats. in his convention speech, paul ryan signaled to suggest that the republicans weren't going t
and well in the middle east including a resurgance in iraq and they are there in libya and this is a terrorist attack and they were foolish to deny it to start with. >> so how would you characterize the moment in our foreign policy? >> a moment of glaring weakness and chickens are coming home to roost. very briefly could i tell you in iraq it is unraveling. they just convicted the president to death penalty. al-qaida is resurgance. the relations between the three different enities sunni and shia and kurds is breaking down. iran is influence is increasing and iranian planes is flying over iraq to syria with arms for assad as we speak. in afghanistan we have had to adopt a policy and not training with the afghan troops, thoo moons they will not be ready to take over the responsibilitis and frankly they never were and so we have to evaluate our whole situation. the attack on the base in kandahar was the most offensive. we lost 200 million worth of airplanes in the death and tragic death of two marines and in syria, the massacre goes on. and finally in iran we continue on t

the first iraq war veteran to serve in congress. patrick, good morning to you. let's note first of all what mitt romney did say at the american legion. this was a speech he gave on august 26th. he said in part "of course, we are still at war in afghanistan. we still have uniformed men and women in conflict risking their lives just as you once did. how deeply we appreciate their service. we honor them, we respect and love them. that's a 16-second quote out of about a 16-minute speech, but no specifics about policy there. why do you think there's been such a fear or reluctance to get specific? >> because then he has to take a stand, craig, and he refuses to do that. it's like what john kerry said in his speech the other night. mitt romney has to debate himself before he actually debates barack obama in a couple weeks. the quote that you said where mitt romney said i talked in my speech about the things that were unimportant. there's 68,000 sons of american families that are fighting for us in afghanistan. that's not important to mitt romney? i mean, he wants to be commander in chief. not just
they inspired to step forward to defend our nation, a generation generation who fought in iraq and to still fight in afghanistan. lettuce rededicate our own lives to the cause of giving back to our great nation. four is one of our nations leaders said, the strength of our democracy has always rested on the willingness of those who believe in its values and in their will to serve, to give something back to this country and now it's my privilege to introduce to you the man who spoke those words and who lives them every day, our secretary of defense, leon panetta.

and iraq. >> i find that sort of understandable. go you think about it, the republicans have been out of the white house since '92. back in '92, the national security threats were other countries. from '92 through 2000, you had members of what became the bush war council involved in national security issues all dealing with iraq. so they come into office in 2001 and they sit down with the clinton beam and the clinton beam said really what you need to worry about is al-qaeda. and what the bush people hear is the biggest threat to our national security is a bunch of guys sitting on a mountain top in afghanistan? >> eliot: it was a foreign language. >> it was a foreign language to them. the inther of 2001 was -- the summer of 2001 was chin tbha, it was russia, it was north korea. the standard national security stuff from ten years earlier. >> eliot: also the residual anger, tbrus -- tbrus ration that the job hadn't been completed. wolfowitz and the others were there at the pentagon saying we want to tbsh the job. >> ri

: in 2007, the u.s. military recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. and when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was kind of an unexpected thing to find. and so historically, libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them? do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there is sort of umbrella group, according to the former libyan jihadist called ansar al sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who are taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, been
in the iraq war. >> guest: over 200,000 have served in iraq and afghanistan. >> host: americans. >> guest: yes, americans. >> host: is that unusual? >> guest: ey, the iraq war in particular set a precedent historically, more women served and have been wounded and killed in the iraq war by iran's 2005 into the war already, than all the american wars put together since world war ii, including afghanistan. so, it was a huge difference. one in every ten troops in iraq was a woman. >> host: did they serve in different capacities than hey served in the past? >> guest: yes, bought because of the nature of the war is a guerrilla war, there isn't any front line. having an area where soldiers from the enemy side will meet up and fight. that doesn't happen anymore. battles take place in hospitals, even if you're driving a truck full of toilet paper, you can be attacked. so, because of no frontline, even if you're combat support or an engineer or a cook, you can get drawn into battle, and many, many women also were being used as gunners and working alongside with the infantry, doing exactly the same job a
opponent said it was tragic to end the war in iraq. he will not tell us how he will end the war in afghanistan. well, i have, and i will. [cheers] while my opponent will spend more money on military hardware and that our joint chiefs do not even want, i will use the money we are no longer spending on were to pay down debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding roads, bridges, and schools. after two wars, it is time to do some nation building right here at home.
